With just ten days to go until Father's Day, forget the usual quirky bottle openers or wine coolers, and spoil Dad with Coravin, the new US-designed cutting-edge wine system which lets him easily sample, pour and enjoy any wine – without committing to the entire bottle. In addition to the existing cork technology, the new Coravin Screw Cap technology, designed especially with the Australian market in mind, protects almost any wine from oxidation using Coravin's proprietary patented technology.
From sampling wines in his cellar to enjoying his treasured aged wine by the glass, Coravin eliminates the issue of saving special bottles for occasion drinking only, and allows Dad to taste and share a range of wines with friends and family with ease whether at a barbeque or a wine appreciation gala. Once accessed with Coravin, wine can continue to be stored and preserved as if it was never open.
With its user-friendly design, Coravin promises wine lovers industry-leading preservation thanks to proven technology – all housed in a lightweight, durable body with ergonomic, soft-touch handles – ensuring it's simple and comfortable to operate. A hit overseas with drinkers who enjoy exploring different regions and varieties of wine, Coravin gives Dad the freedom to drink what he wants, when he wants it, without compromising on taste, or producing waste.
Bound to be a hotter hit than last-minute socks and sweets this Father's Day, Coravin is a transformational technology Dad will treasure for years to come.
How Coravin Works for Screwcaps in Australia
Choose a fancied screwcap still wine.
Remove and discard existing screwcap.
Don't pour wine directly from the bottle.
Immediately replace with Coravin Screw Cap.
Push the hollow needle through Coravin Screw Cap.
Tilt as if the wine was being poured from an open bottle and make sure the wine is touching the Coravin Screw Cap.
Press the trigger to inject inert argon gas
As the gas enters and pressurises the bottle, wine is forced out through the needle and into the glass via the spout.
After pouring, remove the needle, and the unique Coravin Screw Cap will re-seal.
Dad's wine hasn't been oxidised – leaving it fresh to enjoy for weeks and months. When Coravin's Screw Caps are used correctly, wine is protected from oxidation for up to three months. Coravin usage on standard corked bottles preserves the wine indefinitely – wine continues to age as if never opened.
